construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is
or regulating drugs as a means of doing both of those? >> i'm all for it. i don't want anything taxed at all, but, yeah, i mean, this is -- we may be getting to a pragmatic kind of prohibition era question where it became expedient to legalize alcohol so that you could be, you know, getting some of the great -- so that the federal -- the government could be getting some of the proceeds from that great cash crop, and, you know, marijuana, as we all know, the biggest cash crop in the country. again, you know, i'm looking for the liberals to step up to the plate here. i hear this thing about, oh, wait until obama's relegislated, he'll stop laughing any time anybody mentions this, the idea of legalization. it's not just a libertarian fancy. in opinion polls and in the voting in referendum in all of the states that it's come up in, it's more popular than gay marriage, more popular than a lot of stuff that moved into the consensus of acceptable discussion. it's only in official in washington that this has not been, you know, accepted, and, by the way, i hate to pick the liberals down one more time
and taxes. and perhaps no issues matter more to millions and millions of voters. so that's where we begin tonight. >> four million jobs. >> five million jobs. >> twelve million new jobs. >> twenty three million new jobs. >> good jobs. >> manufacturing jobs. >> part time jobs. >> jobs of the future. >> president obama repeatedly touts the fact that private employment has now grown every month for the past two and-a-half years. >> and what i want to do, is build on the five million jobs that we've created over the last 30 months in the private sector alone. >> mitt romney regularly belittles the president's inability to bring the unemployment rate down to much below eight percent and insists he would do better. >> it's not going to be like the last four years. jobs have been too scarce. i know what it takes to bring them back, and i'm going to do that and make sure you get a job. >> but experts say neither candidate has a quick fix for america's sluggish job market, at last count there were an estimated 23 million americans looking for a job or for more work. >> we're dealing with mass unem
are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
embrace a balanced approach. that is what i support. i think we can go back to the kind of tax rates we had and the clinton administration, those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach that i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal. >> it is amazing to me, congressman, that you can stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education, and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution.

in the state either leading the fight to cut the payroll tax for millions of americans and in pennsylvania so they could of dollars in the pocket to be doubled to invest in the economy, trade adjustment when the workers lose their jobs because of the unfair foreign competition and i let the fight pass that legislation given the training they need to get back on their feet. the so-called dredging plastic the deepening of the channels on was the key player in getting the most recent funding for that so getting results is key for the economy, and i have the honor to have served the people of pennsylvania to have earned their trust and i would ask again to have the opportunity to earn the trust and i would ask for your vote on november 6. thank you. >> moderator: speed become a gentleman that concludes the debate and we want to think the candidates for taking part in this important program. we also want to think of course monica malpass and vernon odom from action news and thank you for watching. now we have these final words from our co-sponsors and thank you so much for being here. >> i of the
. they register under the tax code 501 c 4. the organizations that are primarily about educating people about issues or policy options and things like that but they're allowed to do some political activity. it can't be the main thing they're about. but they are permitted to be in politics. and now because ofthe decisions from 2010 that are so famous they can be more specific in the way they're involved. the things that define the elections are -- because they're mainly about enl indicating people have been able to do that -- educating people and not mainly about elections, they have been able to do that without disclosing the sources of the money that they've gotten. so tense or hundreds of millions of dollars being spent without us knowing where it actually came from. host: let's go to our democrats line. caller: what i would like to say about this money, i feel like this money is basically it's generations of money which a lot of elderly white people have built up over time when the system was discriminatory. now they have come out and decided to buy an election. this money is not taxed or
that's different from the tax reform that's needed for the nation, when we look at the border we need comprehensive immigration reform. as a troubled border and meet with the agricultural folks and ranchers, we have a workforce problem because the immigration system is broken, the visa system is broken, we can't get workers to go back and forth, it takes hours to go back and forth. these create an impediment to commerce, so we have to be able to provide a workforce that can move back and forth very easily. and right now, we are not able to do that because of all of the impediments that aren't there not by having an effective comprehensive immigration policy. so that becomes an economic issue as well. >> some of the issues have to do with the issue that was raised here with regard to being near the border. the work that comes on and being especially susceptible to the national trends when it comes to unemployment in the economy. we need to do some things desperately here like a commuter plane that will make it easier for labor to come across from the daytime and go back at night. that'

will -- expansion wi. i guess my point is that many low income families don't file taxes. so the information that is -- because they're not required to, not because they're out of compliance. but they may not be required to file taxes. so snap information may be available in a way that you can fast track their medicaid eligibility because they provided recent information to the snap agency. so i don't think that that really, um, complicates the opportunities for coordinating between nap and medicaid significantly. >> thank you very much. i am going to give our panelists an opportunity if any of you have closing remarks that you'd like to jump in with before we wrap it up, or -- okay. well, thank you all very much for coming.

the payment of tax grants. the move comes as it looks increasingly unlikely to pass a bill to issue deficit covering bonds. the main opposition parties are against it. the bonds are necessary to implement the budget. government officials say they could run out of money by the end of november unless it's passed. it was scheduled on friday to allocate $27 billion to prefectures and $24 billion to municipalitie municipalities. some tax grants due in september have already been deferred. people in cash strapped municipalities can expect the latest delay to expect financing and disrupt public services. that's all for me for now. i'll leave you with the markets this tuesday here in asia. >>> the discussion included disputed islands in the south china sea. they agree to continue talks to establish a declaration of conduct with their will to resolve the issue peacefully. countries have been asking china to agree to a legal biding code of conduct governing behavior in the disputed region. they have failed to reach substantial progress over the issue. china has been reluctant to establish a code of c

class. says he'd cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody. but the problem is we've heard those promises before. >> mitt romney meantime has added an important endorsement here in the battleground state of iowa. the "des moines register" as of last night has chosen romney because they say this is all about the economy. keep in mind, they endorsed the president four years ago, then-senator four years ago. this marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican in the presidential election here. just on friday, i spoke with carol hunter. she is the senior news director of the paper. she very much so agreed with me. iowa up for grabs. >> it's pretty much like ohio in that it's very much a toss-up state. all the polls are showing it pretty much dead even. there's a rasmussen report out that has them both at 48%. the rolling averages are all within the margin of error. it's just going to be close, close, close, right down to the wire. and how precious those six electoral votes are just shows how close the entire national campaign is. >> mitt romney spen
, the fiscal cliffs. when we get a solid policies that's predictable the economy grows. and when we have tax reform we get tax rate downs that estimate-- stimulates incentives to hire people t really is basic economics. that why this is tragic. applying basic economie economies-- economics we could do a lot better. >> brown: austan goolsbee, dow want to comment on what the president you work for has done. >> i will just say is we can agree on the basic economics but i think professor taylor has his history a little backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown:
with the one on the card. >>> supporters of the governor's tax measure are targeting bay area drivers right now. they are showing banners on freeway overpasses. proper 30 would raise sales taxes by a quarter cents and race income taxes on those who earn more than $250,000 a year. if it fails it could trying billions of dollars in education cuts. >> a new field poll suggests support is slipping for both proposition 30 and a competing measure. 48% of likely california voters say they will vote yes on 30. that is down from 54% in july. 38% say they will vote no and 14% say they are undecided. a poll shows support for the alternative measure, proposition 38 now is at 34%. that's down from 46% in july and 49% say they will vote no. 17% say they are undecided. >> we have cold weather coming back and that means the start of winter spare the area alert. over the next four months, officials will issue alerts about burning wood when weather conditions cause concern about air pollution. they say wood smoke is the biggest source of air pollution. 15 spare the area alerts were issued last winter. >>> new
